I have an existing MultiPlus (v2002142) and multi control panel that was installed in our boat and working.
We added a Venus GX to our system this week with latest firmware. Now both the Multiplus and multi control are plugged directly into the Venus GX VE.Bus ports.
The Venus GX sees the Multiplus just fine. The multi control though is non-operational.
The mulit control will have the following lights on. Some random txt will be on the LCD panel.
- Mains on
Q1: Is the VE.Bus cable a straight through RJ45? I could find only one passing reference. I had to make my own cable from the GX to the multi-control
Q2: Will the MultiPlus with the old microprocessor support GX and multi-control together like the data sheet shows?
Q3: Do I need to do a firmware upgrade on the Multi-Control from 142 -> 159 to get this to work? Its $70 for the USB to MK3 to do the upgrade.
